Jerrod Niemann vs. Jake Owen – The Showdown
Jerrod Niemann‘s Dehydration Nation has stepped up in a big way over the last two weeks. The star’s new song ‘Buzz Back Girl’ has won four straight Showdown song battles, meaning he needs just one more to have an entrant in the Showdown Hall of Fame. Can the groovy song top Jake Owen‘s latest?
Owen’s fans are also very loyal, and very active. ‘What We Ain’t Got’ represents a change of pace for the ‘Beachin” singer. The reflective ballad is a new direction for the Florida-born star. It tugs at emotions, which may get people pulling down his name at the voting booth over the course of the next two days.
Listen to clips of both Niemann and Owen’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Friday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger on Friday.
*Note: Taste of Country erred in putting ‘Buzz Back Girl’ in a sixth consecutive Showdown. His song has been retired, and the new Showdown can be found HERE.

Showdown Rules: The song with the most votes wins, and the winner goes on to face a new challenger in the next Showdown. Vote as much as once per hour online. If a song wins five Showdowns in a row, it will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. Some songs will be considered for a second Showdown if voter turnout is healthy in a losing effort.
